Would someone be willing to post the films Son of the Sheik and/or Cobra starring Rudolph Valentino? Thanks!

Cobra is now uploaded

as is The Four Horsemen Of The Apocalypse

The soundtracks are pretty generic - they work with some scenes and not others.

If memory serves, Valentino has an odd window, in that his pre-1923 films are (obviously) PD, his films that are post-1923 to when he joined United Artists are under copyright, and the films he did for UA until his death are PD, because United Artists, if memory serves, abandoned a *lot* of copyrights on silent films in the late 40s.

That would also mean that Cobra isn't (it was his last non-UA film) and The Eagle, his first UA film, is.

This is only from memory. I highly suggest someone who has decent copyright-fu actually look it up.

I have both films.

"Son of the Sheik" is in copyright so it can't be legally uploaded here.

"Cobra" wasn't renewed and is PD I'll find my copy and try to upload it soon.
